Christian artists and speakers will gather on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, from 6:00-10:00 PM at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT to offer “A Night of Hope and Healing” for families of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. The tribute concert is free and open to the public, though there are currently no more tickets available.
TobyMac, Chris Tomlin, Mandisa, Laura Story, Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Building 429 have volunteered to lead the night in worship. Authors and speakers Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, and Mary Beth Chapman will also make special appearances.
“The initial response to the event was overwhelming, with over 10,000 tickets going in just 30 minutes, and since then 2,000 more seats have been opened,” commented Kevin Braun of Generation Exodus, the company organizing the event. “I think this speaks to how we as a nation want to honor and show our support to this community.”
